Radiotherapy > RayPilot®
RayPilot® is designed for continuous prostate tracking. By knowing the exact position of the cancerous organ at any moment, the treatment can be focused on the tumor and healthy surrounding tissue can be avoided.
The functionality of RayPilot® is similar to a GPS system by means that a target is localized with given coordinates. RayPilot® use electromagnetic communication between a transmitter in the ROI and a receiver placed directly on the treatment couch, on a screen the motion of the transmitter is presented 30 times a second.
The system consists of the RayPilot receiving system which is placed on any existing treatment couch, the RayPilot transmitter that is placed in the ROI, and the RayPilot software.
